All Day - Wednesday, May 29, 2013 through Wednesday, May 29, 2013 (US/Mountain)
Category: MS Resources & Awareness
Can Do MS is proud to take part in celebrating 2013 World MS Day with our MS communities around the globe! World MS Day is the world’s only global awareness raising campaign for MS. Every year, the MS movement comes together to provide the public with information about MS and how it affects the lives of more than two million people around the world.
This year World MS Day 2013 shines a spotlight on Young People and MS and shares these perspectives to bring greater awareness about MS. MS is the most common neurological disease affecting young people. You don't have to be living with MS to take part. This year, you can share your motto for overcoming challenges and making the most of whatever life brings you. Share yours today at http://mymotto.worldmsday.org!
What’s Your Motto?
We all have mottos that we live our lives by. “What’s your motto?” aims to inspire us all with personal mottos related to overcoming obstacles and dealing with the adversity posed by MS.
The World MS Day campaign will create awareness about MS through six “young voices” who will inspire others to share their own mottos with the world, highlighting common themes, shared concerns, fears and challenges, and the shared inspiration for overcoming them.
Every week for three weeks in May, six mottos will be released (one for each young person) at worldmsday.org. On World MS Day — May 29, 2013 — the stories behind these mottos will be revealed, bringing people back to worldmsday.org to discover more about the young people who took part in the campaign.
What you can do to bring it back to Can Do MS... look for our Facebook and Twitter updates with World MS Day mottos, photos, videos and "like" or "retweet" our posts, then share your World MS Day motto with us on our wall! We'd love to hear yours!
